uPNP bug ?


Recommended Posts


I have started using uPNP on my router rather than hardcoding the external ports. The reason behind this is that my router often just gets choked up and need to reboot often (which gives me new external IP) and so not getting inbound floods. I thought I could use uPNP and utorrent so that each time I start utorrent it uses a different port and then opens up that port on my router. However it does NOT close ones it has opened before, so my internet had gone to a slooooow mo - I just looked and found 12 port mappings had been create and my logs said I was being flooded. A router reboot, clear up ports and internet is back to normal.

Should utorent not clean up ports it is no longer using if it has opened them before ?
